Follow-up Comment #86, bug #53276 (project octave):

@Philip: I've installed Mageia 6 with KDE/Plasma (x86_64 build) on a hard
drive.  It took a lot of time installing all the packages needed for Octave,
but I finally managed a build.  And as you might guess, according to Murphy's
Law, the latest patch here applied to a fairly recent version of the
repository works perfectly!  See the attached screenshot for the full
decorated windows.  Float button works, title-bar double-click works,
drag-and-drop outside the main GUI window works.

So, I've now installed as near as I can tell the same Linux distro that Rik's
using and the same distro that Philip is using and things work nicely here. 
I've got a brand name HP.  What kind of cheap hardware are you using?

Seriously, I kind of suspected this would happen.  There is probably some
general non-robustness about Qt on KDE/Plasma...say a compiler difference or
GTK difference on our systems or something arcane that is causing a
difference.  Maybe I'm choosing a different compiler or utilities at install
out of habit.  Don't know.  I've seen somewhere a programmer complained about
Qt 5.8.x cause a bad problem on KDE/Plasma for their company.  I don't know
what to say.  The only thing that comes to mind if either of you want to
install 5.9, I think SuSE might have a distro version that has it.
